Walter Taylor Ward Budget Newsletter 2017/18
Monday, 26 June 2017
I am proud to have worked with Lord Mayor Graham Quirk to ensure a 2017-18 Budget that will significantly enhance local infrastructure as well as the lifestyle and leisure opportunities in the Walter Taylor Ward.
With more than $1.8 million for local footpath and park upgrades and a further $2.4 million to resurface local streets our suburbs will continue to be well maintained and a wonderful place for residents to live and raise a family.
Congestion busting projects at key intersections in Taringa and Indooroopilly have been funded and detailed design work will progress on the replacement of the Indooroopilly roundabout.
Funding of over $1 million will enable Stage 2 of the Witton Barracks Park project to commence. Already significant work has been undertaken to decontaminate the site and open the front portion to the community as open space for the first time in the site’s more than 75 year history.
Locally, $2.5 million will be invested this year to establish a new Koala Research Centre at Fig Tree Pocket. The Centre, which is a collaboration with the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, will conduct important research into Koala diseases to help ensure we retain a sustainable local koala population.
Attached is a comprehensive newsletter on what we are delivering for Walter Taylor Ward and greater Brisbane this financial year.
As always, please don't hesitate to contact me on (07) 3407 0005 or at firstname.lastname@example.org if I can be of assistance with any Council matter.
